Welcome to the website of the Open Humanities Group of the Open Knowledge Foundation.

We promote the use of open source tools and open access in humanities teaching and research.

Open Shakespeare

ShakespeareOpen Shakespeare provides the complete works of Shakespeare, along with textual apparatus (introduction, notes) and tools (concordance, search, annotation, word frequency, etc.) all in an open form.



Open Milton

John MiltonOpen Milton is the sister site of Open Shakespeare, demonstrating the ease with which Open Shakespeare‘s code may be adapted to other uses.





Open Correspondence

Visualisation of Dickens' correspondenceOpen Correspondence allows its users to explore the correspondence – and the social networks – of the nineteenth century literary world. At the moment the project currently contains some of the letters of Charles Dickens but we’re working to expand to it include many other authors such as Jane Austen, George Eliot and Byron.
